What should he have done with the Mexican flag? Fold it neatly? Salute it? Kiss it?

Are you kidding me, Mexico doesn't hate Americans. They rely on our tourism to make money. Every time I go there on vacation I'm treated great. They love America becasue when they see us they see $$$$$$$. Not only that, but the women love GRINGOS, ohhhh yeah!!! I don't know about South America, but I Hate Venezuela and that POS President they have. Listen, if someone has pride in their ancestry that's fine, just don't make it to where you hate America yet you're still here and that goes to everyone (German, Irish, Armenian, Mexican etc.)

Vet cuts down Illegal Mexican flag flying above U.S. Flag

It really is messed up here in Charlotte. I see the mexican flag daily. I have seen it flying above the american flag. This needs to stop. I have only been in charlotte for 2 years, and I do plan on moving to a non sancturary city. The more illegals that come here, the more trash I see.

WAY TO GO VETS. We need to start some groups to help protect our country from invasion in the government isn't going to do anything. Most of our military is in Iraq?

I often wonder how secure that same border would be if it was an Arab Nation next to us?

There's quite a difference between throwing a flag on the ground and kissing it. Perhaps just give it to one of the guys standing around, I don't know.

Respecting your country's flag doesn't have to include disrespecting another country's flag.

Why should one respect the disrespectful?

Have you heard this saying: Respect must be earned.

All this demonstrates is that they love our money.

The flag itself did not disrespect the veteran... The people who flew it did.

If an American drove to Mexico and flew a US flag above the Mexican one, would you think it was ok if a Mexican citizen cut up our flag and threw it on the ground?

Poor little flag. Maybe it should visit a battered flags shelter.

I said

RandomU, I appologize for misunderstanding the intent of what you said.
